    Nation, Self, and Citizenship: An Invitation to Philippine Sociology

    Randolf S. David

    Winner, National Book Award, Social Science, 2002
    “The discourse of nationhood and social responsibility pervades almost every area of Philippine social science. The Filipino nation is unfinished business, and therefore it is understandable that in public discourse the nation’s needs take moral precedence over individual fulfillment. Thus, the book takes up the troubled quest of the modern Filipino for autonomy and meaning in the bosom of his own society, a young nation that is itself aspiring to grow into a full modern nationhood in a globalized and, some say, postmodern era.”
